THE GH \Dl \TE SCHOOL OF THE UNIVERSITY OF 
NORTH CAROLINA 

STATE COLLEGE DIVISION 

William M. Whyburn. Vice-President, Graduate Studies and Research 
Donald Benton Anderson, Dean, Raleigh 

ORGANIZATION 

The Graduate School of the Consolidated University of North Carolina 
is composed of three divisions, one at each of the three units of the Univer- 
sity System. Each branch of the Consolidated Graduate School is admin- 
istered by a Graduate Dean who works in close association with the Vice- 
President in charge of Graduate Studies and Research. The Graduate 
Council is composed of representatives of the Administrative Boards of 
each of the three units of the Consolidated University. At State College 
the Graduate Dean is assisted in all matters of policy by an Administrative 
Board of seven members, five of whom are elected by the faculties of the 
degree granting schools, the remaining two being appointed by the Chan- 
cellor after consultation with the Dean. 

Graduate instruction at State College is organized to provide opportunity 
and facilities for advanced study and research in the fields of Agriculture, 
Engineering. Forestry, Technological Education, and Textiles. The purpose 
of these graduate programs is to develop in advanced students a more 
adequate comprehension of the scope of knowledge in these special fields of 
learning and an understanding of the requirements and responsibilities 
essential for independent research investigations. In all of the graduate pro- 
grams emphasis is placed upon a high level of scholarship rather than upon 
the satisfaction of specific course or credit requirements. 

Facilities. — The full resources of the Consolidated University of North 
Carolina are made available to all graduate students enrolled at any one 
of the three branches of the Graduate School. Exceptional facilities for 
graduate study are provided at State College. New buildings furnish mod- 
ern well equipped laboratories for graduate study in specialized areas of 
Agriculture, Engineering, Forestry, and Textiles. One of the new buildings 
houses a nuclear reactor. Research facilities are available in the new re- 
actor building for graduate students in physics, engineering and the 
biological sciences. 

The North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station and the Department 
of Engineering Research are integral parts of the College. The staff, re- 
search facilities, equipment, and field studies of these organizations con- 
tribute in a very important way to the graduate programs of the College. 
The presence of the Institute of Statistics on the State College Campus 
makes available to graduate students unusual opportunities in this impor- 
tant phase of research study. 

The state of North Carolina, extending from the Atlantic Ocean westward 
about 500 miles to the high Appalachian Mountains, possesses an excep- 
tional range of climatic and topographic environments. The coastal plain, 
the piedmont, and the mountains provide a rich pattern of agricultural and 
industrial activities which offer unusual opportunities for research study 
and employment. 

20 



State College is located in Raleigh, a city of 85,000, situated on the 
boundary separating the broad coastal plains on the east from the rolling 
terrain of the piedmont on the west, about midway between the northern and 
southern boundaries of the state. Raleigh is 29 miles from Chapel Hill, the 
location of the University of North Carolina, and 26 miles from Durham, 
the home of Duke University. The libraries and other facilities of the three 
institutions make this area one of the important centers of research op- 
portunity in the South. 

The College Library 

The N. C. State College Library has excellent holdings in materials 
essential for research study in the graduate curricula offered by the 
college. 

As of July 1, 1957 the College Library held more than 165,400 vol- 
umes of books and bound journals, and more than 12,000 bound volumes of 
documents. The books and journals have been selected to reflect strongly 
the scientific and technological interests of the College, and the documents 
represent a most important increment of the whole collection. They include, 
in addition to the publications of the Federal government, all publications 
of the various Agricultural Experiment Stations, most of the publications 
of the Engineering Experiment and Engineering Research Stations, and 
publications of the various research stations from all over the world. 

The depository status of the College Library may be described as follows : 

1. The Library is a complete depository for all unclassified publications of 
the Federal government that are available for distribution. This in- 
cludes, of course, publications of the U.S.D.A., Geological Survey, Na- 
tional Bureau of Standards, Department of Interior, etc. Since 1923, the 
year the library was designated as a depository, our document holdings 
in the fields of our special interest are almost 100% complete. 

2. The Library is a "selective" depository for the publications of the 
Carnegie Institution of Washington. The Library has excellent files of 
these valuable monographs. 

3. The Library is a depository for all unclassified and declassified publi- 
cations of the Atomic Energy Commission. 

4. The Library receives on exchange the publications of many foreign 
countries — especially publications dealing with the agriculture sciences 
and with engineering. 

The resources of the College library together with the generous assistance 
given to us by our sister institution, the University Library at Chapel 
Hill, and inter-library loan service available from other scientific libraries 
make the D. H. Hill Library of the North Carolina State College a highly 
satisfactory adjunct of the graduate program of the College. 

A reciprocal arrangement has been made with the library at the Uni- 
versity of North Carolina and the Duke University Library whereby their 
facilities are available to our faculty and graduate students who may wish 
to deal with these libraries directly. 

Identification certificates may be secured at the office of the director of 
the State College Library.

Research Program at the Oak Ridge Institute of Nuclear Studies 

..rolina State College as a unit of the Consolidated University of 
North Carolina is one of the sponsoring institutions of the Oak Ridge 
Institute of Nuclear Studies located at Oak Ridge, Tennessee. Through 
this cooperative association with the Institute our graduate research pro- 
gram has at its disposal the facilities of the National Laboratories in Oak 
Ridge and of the research staffs of these laboratories. When master's and 
doctoral candidates have completed their resident work, it may be possible, 
by special arrangement, for them to go to Oak Ridge to do their research 
problems and prepare their theses. In addition, it is possible for the staff 
members of this university to go to Oak Ridge for varying periods, usually 
not less than three months, for advanced study in their particular fields. 

Institute of Statistics 

The development of the Institute of Statistics has made an important 
contribution to the graduate program at State College. The Institute is 
organized as a part of the Consolidated University of North Carolina with 
a section at State College and a section at the University at Chapel Hill. 

By utilizing the combined strengths of the two groups in most c - 
work, the Institute draws upon the excellent background of theory and 
the experience of application found in few institutions in the world. The 
instructional program is backed by an active responsibility in consulting 
with institutional and contract research projects and by an increasing 
volume of research in statistics and methodology. 

At the request of the Southern Regional Education Board's Advisory 
Commission or. -. Virginia Polytechnic Institute, Oklahoma State 

\ the University of Florida, and North Carolina State College 
have joined in a continuing program of graduate summer sessions in sta- 
. held at the four institutions in rotation. In 1958. the host is Okla- 
homa State. The courses at North Carolina State College will be offered by 
the Department of Experimental Statistics. Each of the sponsoring institu- 
tions will accept the credits earned by students in the summer sessions as 
residence credit. The courses are arranged to provide consecutive work in 
successive summers. Information regarding these courses may be obtained 
from any of the cooperating statistical departments or the Deans of the 
Graduate Schools. 



-J 



THE GRADUATE DEGREES 

The Graduate School of State College offers work leading to the Master 
of Science degree in the specialized branches of Agriculture, Education, 
Engineering, Forestry and Textiles; the Professional Master's degree in 
Agriculture, Technological Education and Forestry; and the Doctor of 
Philosophy degree in certain fields of Agriculture, Engineering, and For- 
estry. 

A graduate student is expected to familiarize himself with the require- 
ments for the degree for which he is a candidate and is held responsible for 
the fulfillment of these requirements. This applies to the last dates on which 
theses may be accepted, the dates for examinations, the proper form of 
theses, and all other matters regarding requirements for degrees. 

ADMISSION 

Admission may be to full graduate standing, provisional or in an un- 
classified status. All applications for admission to the Graduate School 
must be accompanied by official transcripts from all colleges previously 
attended. 

Full Graduate Standing. For admission in this category a student must 
have a Bachelor's degree from a recognized college or university regarded 
as standard by a regional or general accrediting agency and at least a 
B grade average in the undergraduate major. 

Provisional admission may be granted to applicants who lack under- 
graduate work considered essential for graduate study in the major field. 
Course work, without graduate credit, will be required to make up such 
deficiencies before admission to full graduate status can be granted. 

Graduates from non-accredited institutions may be granted provisional 
admission when their academic records warrant. Additional course work will 
be required of such students when deficiencies in their previous training are 
apparent. 

Graduates from accredited institutions whose scholastic records are below 
the standards for admission to full graduate standing may be admitted 
provisionally when unavoidable extenuating circumstances affected their 
undergraduate averages or when progressive improvement in their under- 
graduate programs warrant. All such students are required to take the 
Graduate Record Examinations and to submit scores to the Graduate Office 
in support of their application. The National Teacher's Examination may 
be substituted for the Graduate Record Examination if recommended by 
the department head. Information as to the dates on which the Graduate 
Record and the National Teacher's Examinations are given may be ob- 
tained at the Graduate Office. 

Graduate students admitted on a provisional status may attain full 
graduate standing when the deficiencies responsible for their provisional 
status have been corrected. They also must have maintained a satisfactory 
academic record in all course work taken as a part of their graduate 
program. 

Unclassified graduate students are not candidates for graduate degrees. 
They may take courses for graduate credit, but may not apply more than 10 
credits earned while in the unclassified status to any program leading to an 

23 



advanced degree at this institution. Unclassified graduate students are ex- 
pected to meet the same admission requirements that apply to graduate 
students in full standing. 

Applications for admission to the Graduate School should be on file in the 
Graduate Office at least thirty days in advance of the registration date for 
the term in which the student wishes to enroll in the Graduate School. 

Students who apply for admission to the Graduate School without having 
allowed sufficient time for the study of completed transcripts, or prior to 
the receipt of their scores on the Graduate Record Examinations, may be 
admitted as unclassified students. When evaluation of completed transcripts 
or satisfactory performance on the Graduate Record Examinations warrant, 
such students may be transferred during the semester to full or provisional 
status. Unless transcripts or Graduate Record Examination scores are 
received within a reasonable time after admission or when evaluation of 
transcripts or scores on the Graduate Record Examinations indicate un- 
satisfactory qualifications for graduate study, no graduate credit may be 
received for course work. 

The Office of Registration must have written authorization from the 
Dean of the Graduate School before any graduate student will be given 
a permit to register. This permit will be sent by the Graduate Dean at 
the time the student is notified of his acceptance. 

A full-time graduate load is considered to be 15 credits per semester. This 
course load restriction is made so that graduate students may have time 
for reading and contemplation well beyond the limits set for satisfactory 
undergraduate work. In exceptional cases one or two additional credit hours 
may be added to the roster if necessary in order to get prerequisite work 
which is not taught in subsequent terms, provided the corresponding ad- 
justment in course load is made in the other terms. Rosters with additional 
credit hours beyond 15 should be accompanied by a special note from the 
head of the major department indicating the reasons for the additional 
work. 

Full-time employees of the College may register for one course in each 
semester. Registration for two courses will be permitted (a) when a reduc- 
tion in the service obligation of the employee releases time that may be 
devoted to graduate study or (b) when the total credits do not exceed 
four. Staff members whose service obligations are reduced in any given 
semester will be permitted a proportionate increase in graduate course 
work. 

Employees of the College having academic rank higher than that of in- 
structor may register for graduate work for credit to be transferred to 
other institutions. They may not undertake programs for graduate degrees 
in the Consolidated University of North Carolina. 

Graduate assistants on half-time appointments are permitted a maximum 
course load of 9 credits per semester unless corresponding adjustments are 
made in their service obligations during the same semester. If the appoint- 
ment is for the academic year of 9 months, half-time assistants are re- 
stricted to a maximum of 18 credit hours of work during the 9 months of 
their appointment. Half-time graduate assistants whose appointments are 
for 12 months may not exceed a total of 24 credits during the 12 month 
period of their appointment. 

24 



A member of the senior class of State College may, upon approval of the 
Dean of the Graduate School, register for courses in the 500 group for 
graduate credit to fill a roster of studies not to exceed 15 credits in any 
semester. Not more than 6 hours of graduate credit may be acquired by 
an undergraduate student. Courses listed with numbers in the 600 series 
are not open to undergraduates. 

All regularly enrolled graduate students must take a physical examina- 
tion. Preferably this should be given by the family physician on forms pro- 
vided by the College. When this is not done the examination may be taken 
at the College during registration. A fee of $5.00 will be charged for the 
examination when it is given by the College physician. 

Admission to Candidacy for Graduate Degrees 

Admission to the Graduate School does not constitute admission to can- 
didacy for a graduate degree. Application for admission to candidacy for 
graduate degrees must be submitted to the Administrative Board of the 
Graduate School. Applications of students preparing for the Master's 
degree may not be filed before the satisfactory completion of one full semes- 
ter of graduate study and must be presented before the end of the first week 
of the last semester in residence. Approval of the application will be de- 
termined by the quality of the scholastic record and on the certification 
by the major department that the student is qualified to continue advanced 
work. Admission to candidacy for the doctorate is granted upon satisfac- 
tory completion of the qualifying or preliminary examinations. 

MASTEK OF SCIENCE DEGREE 

The Master of Science degree is awarded at State College after comple- 
tion of a course of study in specialized fields in Agriculture, Education, 
Engineering, Forestry or Textiles; demonstration of ability to read a 
modern foreign language; completion of a satisfactory thesis and of com- 
prehensive examinations in the chosen field of study. 

In addition to complying with these requirements, the candidate for 
the Master of Science degree is expected to achieve high levels of scholar- 
ship. Graduate study is distinguished from undergraduate work by its 
emphasis upon independent research. The graduate student is more inter- 
ested in the significance of facts than in the accumulation of data. He is 
concerned with the materials of learning and the organization and inter- 
pretation of these materials. 

A graduate student's program of study is planned so as to provide a 
comprehensive view of some major field of interest and to furnish the 
training essential for successful research in this field and related areas 
of knowledge. As great a latitude is permitted in the selection of courses 
as is compatible with a well-defined major interest. The program of course 
work is selected with the object of making possible a reasonable mastery 
of the subject matter in a specialized field. Training in research is pro- 
vided to give the student familiarity with the methods, ideals, and goals 
of independent investigation. Since there are many possible combinations 
of courses, the administration of graduate programs calls for personal 
supervision of each student's plan of work by a special advisory committee 

25 



e graduate f:. ee page 27.) The program of course work to 

be followed by the student as a part of the requirements for the Master's 
degree and the thesis problem selected must be approved by the student's 
advisory committee and the Dean of the Graduate School. 

-1. For the master of Science degree a minimum of thirty 
semester credits is required. 

i Not more than 6 of the academic credits required for a graduate 
degree will be accepted from other institutions. 

3. No graduate credit will be awarded for excess undergraduate credit 
from any other institution. 

All work credited toward a master's degree must be completed within 
six calendar years. 

5. No graduate credit is allowed for courses taken by correspondence. 
A maximum of 6 semester credits may be obtained in extension study in 
the field of Education provided the extension courses are taught by a 
member of the Graduate Faculty and provided the courses are given gradu- 
ate ranking by the Graduate School. Courses taken by extension are ac- 
cepted for graduate credit only when the student has been admit* e I :: 
the graduate school and when notice of registration is filed with the 
Graduate Office. Courses taken in extension study do not reduce the resi- 
dence requirements unless they are a part of an approved program of work 
undertaken at an off-campus center approved by the Graduate School. Cred- 
it for extension courses reduces the amount of credit that may be trans- 
ferred from other institutions by the amount of graduate credit granted. 

Residence. — Students engraged in a course of study leading to the Ifa 
of Science degree are required to be in residence at the College, pursuing 
graduate work, one full academic year unless enrolled in an approved 
off -campus program of graduate study. Resident students are not permitted 
to complete the requirements for the Master of Science degree in a shorter 
period of time. 

Residence credit is based on the number of credits carried in a given 
term. During a regular semester, residence credit is calculated in the fol- 
lowing manner: 

Semester Credits Residence Credit 

3-5 44 semester 

6-8 % semester 

9-11 % semester 

12-15 1 semester 

Six summer schools of six weeks in residence at the College are suf- 
ficient to fulfill the residence requirement. In a six weeks' summer session 
residence credit earned is determined by the following schedule: 
Semester Credits Residence Credit 

6 % semester 

less than 6 i 4 semester 

The thirty semester credit hour requirement for the Master's degree 
represents the minimum quantity of work acceptable. The credit hours re- 
quired of graduate students usually exceed the minimum requirements. 
Inadequate preparation and thesis research frequently make additional 
work necessary. 



Courses of Study. — The program of the student shall contain at least 
eight semester credits in courses of the 600 group, no more than six of 
which may be allowed for research study. Graduate students may use not 
more than six semester hours of course work of the 400 level for credit on 
programs leading to the Master's degree. To be acceptable for graduate 
credit, courses bearing a 400 number must fall in other than the student's 
major field of interest. 

During the first tei'm in residence an advisory committee of at least 
three faculty members, one representing the field of the minor, will be 
appointed by the Dean, after consultation with the head of the major 
department, for each student engaged in a program of work leading 
to the Master's degree. The advisory committee will meet with the student 
and prepare a program of course work to meet the requirements of the 
student's graduate objectives. Four copies of the program, prepared on 
forms provided for this purpose, must be approved by each member of the 
committee, by the head of the major department and the Dean of the 
Graduate School. After approval in the Graduate Office, three copies 
will be returned to the department head, one for his files, one for the chair- 
man of the advisory committee and one for the student. 

The courses taken by a graduate student shall constitute a well-rounded 
but unified plan of study. This is interpreted to mean that the program of 
research and course work shall be divided between a major and a minor 
field. While there are no inflexible rules which govern the number of 
credit hours that must constitute the major and minor, in general, it is 
expected that approximately two-thirds of the course work will fall in the 
major and one-third in the minor. The detailed course requirements for 
each graduate student program are left to the judgment of the advisory 
committee. 

Class Work. — A graduate student is expected to show greater initiative 
in exploring the possibilities of the subject matter presented in the courses 
he takes than is the undergraduate. He is also expected to recognize the 
significance of facts and to assume a responsibility for relating data to 
theoretical concepts. In preparation, attendance, and in all the routine of 
class work the graduate student is subject to the regulations observed in 
other divisions of the college. 

Grades. — A minimum grade of C must be made on all formal course 
work to obtain graduate credit. An average of B must be obtained on all 
course work taken as a part of the student's graduate program. Failure 
to maintain a B average in any term will place the student upon proba- 
tion. Any student whose academic record fails to meet the B average 
requirement for two consecutive terms will not be permitted to continue 
a graduate program without the written approval of the Dean. 

Grades in research and seminar courses are given in terms of S (satis- 
factory) or U (unsatisfactory) in place of the symbols used for formal 
course work. 

The grade Incomplete may be used in research or laboratory 
courses when circumstances beyond the control of the student have pre- 
vented completion of the work by the end of the academic term. An in- 
complete grade may be given only after approval by the Dean and must 

27 



be converted to one of the usual symbols before the end of the next 
afyd4»mic semester in which the student is in residence. 

Language Requirements, — A reading knowledge of at least one modern 
foreign language is required of candidates for the Master of Scier.ee degree. 
Ordinarily this language will be German, though French may be used 
where this language is important in the field of the student's major interest. 
Substitution of some other modern foreign language for the German or 
French requires written approval of the Department Head and the Dean 
of the Graduate School. 

The language requirement must be satisfied before a student can be ad- 
mitted to candidacy. 

Proficiency in languages is determined by the Department of Modern 
Languages on the basis of a traditional reading knowledge examination. 
Students whose language preparation is adequate may take their language 
examination by appointment at any time during the academic year. The 
Department of Modern Languages offers course work to assist graduate 
students who desire to improve their comprehension of foreign languages

Thesis. — A candidate for the Master of Science degree must prepare a 
thesis representing an original investigation. The subject of the thesis 
must be approved by the Head of the Department in which the major work 
is done and by the student's advisory committee. Three copies of the thesis 
in final form and an abstract must be filed in the Graduate Office at least 
one month before the degree is awarded. The abstract will be published by 
the College. Detailed instructions as to form and organization of the th cuui 
may be obtained at the Graduate Office. 

Examinations. — All candidates for the Master of Science degree must 
pass, with a grade of A, 8, or C, all formal course work specified as a part 
of the requirements for the degree. Graduate credit for research and 
seminar courses is granted when a grade of S is recorded in the Registra- 
tion Office. In addition, the candidate must pass a comprehensive oral 
examination that is held to satisfy the examining committee that the 
candidate possesses a reasonable mastery of knowledge in the major and 
minor fields and that this knowledge can be used with promptness and 
accuracy. This examination may not be held until all other requirements 

except completing the course work of the las: -i n t l ' M ire satisfied but 

must be taken not later than two weeks before the end of the semester in 
which the degree is to be awarded. Application for the comprehensive oral 
examination must be filed with the Graduate Dean by the chairman of the 
advisory committee at least one week prior to the date on which the 
examination is to be held. 
The oral e x am in ation will be conducted by an examining committee 

:■ 



appointed by the Graduate Dean. The chairman of the examining com- 
mittee will be the chairman of the student's advisory committee. At least 
two additional members will be appointed to represent the major and minor 
fields. The comprehensive oral examination is open to all faculty members 
who care to attend but the decision as to the candidate's fitness rests 
solely with the examining committee. 

At the discretion of the examining committee, written examinations 
covering the subject matter in the major and minor fields also may be 
required of the candidate. Written examinations, when required, may not 
he held earlier than the end of the first month of the last semester in 
residence, and not later than one week before the comprehensive oral 
examination. 

The final examinations for candidates for the Master's degree may not 
be held until the thesis, in complete and final form, bearing the signature 
of the chairman of the student's advisory committee, has been submitted 
to the Graduate Office. 

MASTER'S DEGREE IN A PROFESSIONAL FIELD 

This degree is offered for students who are interested in the more 
advanced applications of fundamental principles to specialized fields rather 
than in the acquisition of the broader background in the advanced scientific 
studies which would fit them for careers in research. Students working 
for this degree ordinarily will terminate their graduate work at this point. 

Examples of the types of degrees that may be awarded upon the com- 
pletion of the course of study in a professional field are: 
Master of Agricultural Education 
Master of Forestry 
Master of Agricultural Engineering 

The degree is not offered in the Schools of Engineering and Textiles. 

The chief characteristics of these degrees is that the changes made in 
requirements permit, in greater measure, the satisfaction of what are 
represented as professional needs than do the requirements for the con- 
ventional Master of Science degree. The most important modification in 
the requirements is the greater emphasis upon the applied rather than 
the basic sciences. 

Language Requirements. — The candidate for a Master's degree in a 
professional field is exempt from the requirements of a reading knowledge 
of a modern foreign language. 

Thesis Requirements. — In the School of Education the thesis requirement 
for the Master's degree in each of the specialized fields may be waived by 
the department in which the degree is sought. When the thesis requirement 
is waived the student must complete the course Introduction to Educational 
Research, or departmental course in research and a problem report. A thesis 
is required for the professional degree in Agriculture and Forestry. 

Other Requirements. — The other requirements for the Master's degree 
in a professional field are the same as for the Master of Science degree. 

THE MASTER OF AGRICULTURE DEGREE 

This plan is offered for the students who are interested in advanced 
training in the broad field of agriculture but whose responsibility is not 

29 



in research. The requirements for the degree are designed to provide an 
opportunity for professional training without narrow specialization to 
those who plan to devote their lives to some phase of practical agricul- 
ture. Among the individuals interested would be agricultural extension 
workers and foreign students who are in action or educational programs. 
The proposed plan differs from the plan for the Master of Science degree 
in the following principal respects: 

1. A total of 36 semester credits is required. 

12. A minimum of four semester credits in special problems is required. 
Not more than six semester credits in special problems will be al- 
lowed. This work replaces the research thesis requirement of the 
Master of Science degree. 

3. There are no specific requirements as to courses in the 600 group. 

4. A reading knowledge of a modern foreign language is not required. 
In all other respects the requirements for the Master of Agriculture 

degree are the same as those for the Master of Science degree.

REQUIREMENTS FOR THE DEGREE OF DOCTOR OF PHILOSOPHY 

The Doctor's degree symbolizes the fact that the recipient is capable of 
undertaking original research and scholarly work at the highest levels 
without supervision. Therefore, the degree of Doctor of Pholosophy is not 
granted on a basis of the successful completion of a given amount of course 
work, but rather upon the demonstration by the candidate of a compre- 

32 



hensive knowledge and high attainments in scholarship and research in a 
specialized field of study. These attainments are determined by the quality 
of the dissertation which the candidate prepares to report the results of 
original investigations and by passing successfully a series of rigorous 
and comprehensive examinations on the special and related fields of study. 

Residence. — A minimum of six full semesters of work beyond the Bache- 
lor's degree is required for the Doctor of Philosophy Degree. Ordinarily, 
students who have the Master's degree will require two additional years of 
full time study to meet the requirements of the Doctor of Philosophy degree. 
At least one of these years must be spent in continuous residence at the 
Consolidated University of North Carolina. 

The amount of credit granted for work accomplished at other institutions 
will be determined by the Dean after consultation with the student's ad- 
visory committee at the time the plan of graduate work is filed. 

Course of Study. — At the time of admission the student should, with the 
advice of the chairman of the department, elect a major field. During the 
first semester in residence an advisory committee of at least five members 
will be appointed by the Graduate Dean, after consultation with the De- 
partment Head, to prepare with the student a plan of graduate work. 
Four copies of the program thus outlined, signed by all members of the 
advisory committee are referred to the Graduate Dean for approval. When 
approved three copies are returned to the Department Head, one being 
retained in the department files, a second copy is given to the chairman of 
the advisory committee, and the third copy is given to the student. The 
subject of the dissertation must appear on the plan of work, and any sub- 
sequent changes in the subject of the thesis or in the plan of graduate 
work must be reported to the Graduate Office for approval. 

There are no definite requirements in credit hours for the Doctor's 
degree. Emphasis is placed upon a comprehensive knowledge of a well 
defined and recognized field and related subjects. There shall be a major 
and one or two minor areas of specialization. The minor field ordinarily 
will consist of at least twenty semester credit hours. These may fall in 
an allied department or in the major department. A minor in the depart- 
ment of the major is permitted only when the department offers recognized 
divisions of study other than that designated as the major field. 

Languages. — A reading knowledge of scientific literature in two modern 
foreign languages is required for the Doctor of Philosophy degree. German 
and French usually meet the language requirements. Substitution of an- 
other modern language for German or French will be permitted only 
when the language substituted is of greater importance in the prosecution 
of the research study. Substitution of another modern language for German 
or French requires the written approval of the Department Head and the 
Graduate Dean. The language requirements must be satisfied before the 
qualifying examinations can be taken. 

Proficiency in languages is determined by the Department of Modern 
Languages on the basis of a traditional reading knowledge examination. 
Students whose language preparation is adequate may take their language 
examination by appointment at any time during the academic year. The 
Department of Modern Languages offers course work to assist graduate 
students who desire to improve their comprehension of foreign languages 

33 



but no course work in language is required of graduate students. Graduate 
students who expect to complete the requirements for the Ph.D. degree 
should confer with the Head of the Department of Modern Languages 
soon after registration to formulate plans for meeting the language re- 
quirement of this degree. 

Students whose native tongue is some language other than English 
may use English as one of the languages required for the Doctor of 
Philosophy degree. When English is submitted in partial fulfillment of 
the language requirements, the native language may not be used to satisfy 
the language requirements. Examinations in English will be given by the 
English Department, and a statement certifying the candidate's proficiency 
in English must be filed in the Graduate Office before the qualifying 
examination may be taken. 

The Dissertation. — The doctoral dissertation presents the results of the 
candidate's original investigations in the field of his major interests. It 
must represent a contribution to knowledge adequately supported by data 
and written in a manner consistent with high standards of excellence in 
scholarship. Detailed instructions relating to the thesis may be obtained 
in the Graduate Office. 

Publication of the results obtained in the thesis investigation is expected. 
Each copy of the thesis must be accompanied by an abstract of approxi- 
mately 500 words. The abstract will be published by the College. 

The dissertation will be examined by all members of the examining 
committee and must receive their approval to be acceptable to the Graduate 
Office. Approval of the committee is indicated by the signature of the 
chairman of the examining committee upon the title page of the thesis. 

Three copies of the dissertation in final form and bearing the signature of 
the chairman of the student's advisory committee must be presented to the 
Graduate Office not later than one month before the date on which the 
degree is to be awarded. 

North Carolina State College now has an agreement with University- 
Microfilms, Inc. of Ann Arbor. Michigan by which all doctoral dissertations 
are microfilmed and abstracts of the dissertations are published in Disser- 
tation Abstracts. 

Examinations. — Not earlier than the end of the second year of graduate 
study and not later than the end of the third week of the academic year 
in which the degree is expected each doctoral student is required to pass 
general comprehensive examinations (known as the qualifying or prelimi- 
nary examinations). The examinations are given by an examining committee 
of graduate faculty- members appointed by the Graduate Dean after con- 
sultation with the head of the department in which the student's major work 
has been taken. The examining committee usually consists of the student's 
advisory committee and a representative of the Graduate School, but may 
include other members of the Graduate Faculty. The examinations are open 
to all members of the Graduate Faculty who may care to attend. 

Authorization for the qualifying examination is requested of the Graduate 
School by the chairman of the student's advisory committee when the major 
part of the student's program of course work has been completed and 
when, in the judgment of the committee, the student is prepared to devote 
the greater part of his time to the prosecution of his research study. Mem- 

34 



bers of the examining committee will be notified of their appointment by 
the Graduate Office. Official printed forms will be supplied to the chairman 
of the examining committee for a report of the results of the examination. 
The examination consists of two parts: (1) written examinations pre- 
pared separately by each member of the examining committee and (2) an 
oral examination held before the entire examining committee. Upon re- 
ceiving authorization for holding the qualifying examination, the chairman 
of the examining committee will request examination questions from each 
member of the examining committee. Each set of questions will be given to 
the student by the chairman of the examining committee in any order that 
may seem appropriate. The questions together with the student's answers 
will be returned to the members of the committee for grading. The questions 
may cover any phase of the course work taken by the student during the 
period of his graduate study or any subject logically related and basic to 
an understanding of the subject matter of the major and minor areas of 
study. They should be designed to measure the student's mastery of these 
subject matter fields and the adequacy of his preparation for research 
investigations. 

Upon satisfactory completion of the written examinations the student 
must pass an oral examination before the entire examining committee. This 
examination usually follows the written examination within a week. The 
members of the examining committee will be notified by the Graduate School 
of the time and place arranged for the oral examination. The oral examina- 
tion is designed to test the student's ability to relate factual knowledge to 
specific circumstances. In the oral examination the student is expected to 
use his knowledge with accuracy and promptness and to demonstrate that 
his thinking is not limited to the facts learned in course work. 

When the examining committee consists of five members, a unanimous 
vote of approval is required for passing the preliminary examination. Ap- 
proval may be conditioned, however, upon the completion of additional work 
in some particular field to the satisfaction of the committee. In case a single 
dissenting vote is cast in a five member committee, the course of action 
to be taken will become a matter for decision by the Administrative Board. 
Upon receiving the approval of the examining committee the student is 
admitted to candidacy for the doctorate. 

A final oral examination is also required. An interval of at least eight 
months must elapse between admission to candidacy and the final oral exami- 
nation. This examination is held after the dissertation has been completed 
and consists in a defense by the candidate of the methods used and the 
conclusions reached in his research study. The examination is conducted by 
an examining committee. The examining committee usually consists of the 
student's advisory committee, plus a representative of the Graduate School, 
although this procedure is not always adopted. The examining committee is 
appointed by the Graduate Dean after consultation with the head of the 
student's major department. 

The final oral examination may not be held until the dissertation in com- 
plete and final form, bearing the signature of the chairman of the student's 
advisory committee as evidence of committee approval has been submitted 
to the Graduate Office. 

Failure of a student to pass either the preliminary or the final examin- 

35 



ation terminates his graduate work at this institution unless nUtertnac 
recommended by the examining committees. No re-examination may be 
given until at least one full semester has elapsed since the first examir 
Only one re-examination is permitted. 

Admission to Candidacy. — A student is admitted to candidacy upon 
successfully passing the preliminary examinations. The language re :_::-- 
mcntn must be fulfilled before permission to take the preliminary exam- 
ination will be granted. ::n to candidacy must be obtained before 
the end of the third week in the academic year in which the deg. 
expected; i.e.. nearly two semesters before the degree is awarded. 

Thesis Regulations. — A booklet containing detailed instructions about 
the form of dissertation may be obtained at the Graduate Office. 

Further information about graduate work at State College may be 
secured from D. B. Anderson, Dean of the Graduate School, X. C. State

In order to draw a clear line between in-state and out-of-state students, 
the Administration has ruled that all students whose parents have not been 
domiciled in North Carolina for more than six months immediately preced- 
ing the day of their first enrollment in the institution shall be termed out-of- 
state students, with the following exceptions: 

(1) Students twenty-one years of age at the time of their first matricu- 
lation who have resided in North Carolina for more than one year 
preceding the day of their first enrollment; 

(2) Children of regular employees of the Federal Government stationed 
in the State of North Carolina; and 

(3) Children of regular employees of the Federal Government who are 
employed outside of the State, but who through law are permitted 
to retain their North Carolina citizenship. 

Students cannot claim a change in their resident status after matricu- 
lating. Students furnishing incomplete or incorrect information in order to 
obtain the special State-resident status shall be liable for dishonorable 
dismissal. 

Graduate students employed by the College or the Experiment Station 
on a part-time basis are not permitted to register for a full-time load of 
course work. The Veterans Administration will classify such students 
as full-time students when it is officially certified by the Dean of the 
Graduate School that the student is engaged in a full-time program of 
professional work.

row Wilson McPherson, Walter Henry Pierce. 
Associate Professors : Lee Roy Martin, George Stanford Tolley, William 
Douglas Toussaint. 

The Department of Agricultural Economics offers programs of study 
leading to the Master of Agricultural Economics, the Master of Science 
and the Doctor of Philosophy degrees. Special emphasis is placed upon 
the economics of agricultural production and marketing, analysis of 
programs and policies affecting agriculture and statistical techniques 
which can be used in solving agricultural problems. The curriculum in- 
cludes courses in advanced economic theory with special adaptation and 
application to agriculture. Collateral fields of study include statistics, rural 
sociology, history and political science, economics, education and various 
technical fields. 

As a part of their advanced training, students are required to prepare 
a thesis dealing with a recognized problem in agriculture. This part of the 
program affords an opportunity to learn how to apply theory and analyti- 
cal techniques in the solution of agricultural problems. 

The rapid growth and devolpment of industry and agriculture in North 
Carolina and throughout the South has resulted in an increased demand 
for well-trained workers throughout the region. This demand far exceeds 
the number of qualified workers available to perform the many duties 
associated with the complex and technical problems of a developing 
economy. Many graduates of the Department of Agricultural Economics are 
employed in various agencies of the Federal and State governments en- 
gaged in research and education work. Others are engaged in professional 
work with commercial organizations dealing in agricultural credit and the 
production and marketing of agricultural products. 

The Department is located on the second floor of Patterson Hall. It has 
a modern and well equipped departmental library, including all of the 
major professional journals and USDA publications. Experiment Station 
publications from other institutions throughout the United States are kept 
on file. In addition to the modern computational and reproduction equip- 
ment available in the Department, IBM equipment in the Department of 
Experimental Statistics is used extensively on a cooperative basis.

in Statistics, Chemistry and the Biological Sciences help provide the oppor- 
tunities for a broad and thorough graduate training. 

Facilities — The Department operates approximately 2,000 acres of land 
in order that animals of various types and breeds may be available for 
research. In addition, branch stations are located in all major geographic 
areas of the state so that the research program may be applied to the 
conditions existing throughout the state. The Animal Industry Research 
Center which is located adjacent to the campus, serves as an intermediary 
between the farms and the laboratories on the campus. At this Research 
Center, digestion trials, animal disease research and many phases of the 
physiology and nutrition programs are conducted. In addition, a physiology 
laboratory and bull barn, with stalls for 20 bulls and with two temperature 
control chambers, is used for research in physiology of reproduction and 
heat tolerance. 

The Department of Animal Industry, with the exception of the Veterinary 
Section, is housed in Polk Hall, a three story building located near the 
center of the campus. The dairy and the meat processing plants and labora- 
tories are located in this building as well as research laboratories for ani- 
mal nutrition, radioactive isotope studies, animal physiology, animal breed- 
ing, dairy bacteriology, and dairy chemistry. Other facilities include class- 
rooms, a scientific journal reading room, and offices for the various teaching, 
research, and extension staff members. 

The Veterinary Section is located in a new and modern animal disease 
laboratory building which provides excellent facilities for research and 
teaching in the animal disease field. Included are large animal isolation 
units for work in the field of veterinary bacteriology and virology, par- 
asitology, physiology, and bacteriology research laboratories, and a Diag- 
nostic Laboratory and necropsy room. 

Every effort is made to provide an opportunity for the graduate student 
to explore the fundamental principles of livestock production and of product 
processing. The graduate student roster is composed of men and women 
from many states and several countries; also the staff is composed of men 
who received their training at various institutions. 

The staff and the physical facilities in various sections are adequate to 
provide leadership and training for an enrollment of approximately 40 
graduate students. 

O pportunities — 

Those receiving advanced degrees have found employment in other educa- 
tional and research institutions, in dairy manufacturing organizations, in 
meat processing industries, in feed manufacturing businesses and in other 
fields. In the past the demand for well-trained personnel has exceeded the 
number that has been available.

Botany offers work leading to the Master of Science degree in the 
special fields of plant physiology, ecology, anatomy, morphology, bacteri- 
ology, and systematic botany. Graduate work in preparation for the 
Doctorate is offered in the fields of plant physiology, plant ecology, and 
morphology. 

51 



The Botany Faculty is provided with good facilities for teaching and 
research. Laboratory space and equipment for graduate study in all phases 
of botany are featured. Of special note are the laboratory and greenhouse 
facilities for research in plant physiology, particularly mineral nutrition, 
and the rapidly growing herbarium which supports study in systematics 
and ecology. The reasonably close location of the coast, coastal plain, pied- 
mont and mountains gives a wide variety of vegetational types of impor- 
tance to research in ecology and systematic botany. The faculty, its facili- 
ties and its geographical location should prove very attractive to those 
interested in graduate study in botany. 

Graduate students terminating their work at the Masters level have a 
somewhat limited opportunity as professional botanists. State and Federal 
employment is available as well as teaching positions in small colleges 
and secondary schools. Those achieving the Ph.D. degree, however, will find 
opportunities for teaching positions in colleges and universities, for re- 
search positions in federal and state Experiment Stations, and for research 
and development work in botanical fields with private industrial or research 
institutions.

The Department of Agricultural and Biological Chemistry offers the De- 
gree of Master of Science in Agricultural and Biological Chemistry. Before 
the master's degree is awarded, a student must have met the requirements 
set forth by the Committee on Professional Training of the American 
Chemical Society for the baccalaureate degree, either at the institution in 
which he received his undergraduate training or at this institution. (Briefly 
the minimum course requirements in Chemistry for the bachelor's degree 
consist of four basic year courses in general chemistry, analytical chemis- 
try, physical chemistry, and organic chemistry, together with at least one 
advanced course. Mathematics, comprising the equivalent of two years of 
college work, which must include one year of differential and integral cal- 
culus, is also required). 

Instruction in Agricultural and Biological Chemistry trains students in 
this area of chemistry, strongly supported with fundamental training in 
the major divisions of chemistry and their applications. Educational, com- 
mercial, and research positions are open to men and women trained in the 
chemistry of plants, animals, soils, fertilizers, insecticides, foods and feeds, 
vitamins and nutrition, and clinical and biophysical chemistry. In the past 
the majority of graduates with the degree of Master of Science have con- 
tinued their education toward the degree of Doctor of Philosophy with a 
major in one of the branches of chemistry. 

The Department of Agricultural and Biological Chemistry is adequately 
equipped with standard instruments and apparatus available for both 
teaching and research. A sizable assortment of specialized equipment is 
also available such as: refractometers, incubators, forced air ovens, several 
spectrophotometers and photoelectric colorimeters, fluorophotometers, po- 
larographs, etc. The spectrographic laboratory is one of the most com- 
plete to be found anywhere and is currently providing analyses for 10 ele- 
ments on each of 25 plant samples per week. 

An up-to-date shop equipped with standard power tools (drill press, 
lathes, band saws, etc.) is available to research workers for construction 
of special apparatus. Complete glass-blowing facilities are also available. 

Complete sets of reference works of more than one hundred chemical 
(including biochemical and nutritional) journals in English, German and 
French are accessible for student use in the D. H. Hill Library. Current 
numbers of the most widely used chemical journals (including all of those 
published by the American Chemical Society) are available in the Chem- 
istry Library.

Some of the areas of specialization for research studies available include 
(1) the isolation, chemical nature, and nutritional significance of certain 
growth factors required by bacteria and yeasts; (2) soils and -weather 
factors influencing the composition of plants; (3) vitamin and or mineral 
studies of plants grown in the South, influence of variety, fertilization, etc; 
itamin methodology; (5) nutritional requirements of various farm 
animals (in cooperation with the Nutrition Section, Animal Industry De- 
partment); (6) mechanisms involved in plant physiological processes; (7) 
techniques of spectrograph^ analysis and their applications in research

Charles Russell McCullough, Carroll Lamb Mann, Jr., Mehmet, 
Ensar Uyanik. 

Associate Professors: Nelson Leonard Nemerow, Charles Smallwood, 
Jr., Michael V. Smhinoff. 

Assistant Professor: John William Horn. 

The Department of Civil Engineering offers programs of graduate study 
leading to the degree of Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy. 
Graduate course work is available in the specialty fields of sanitary engi- 
neering, soil mechanics and foundation engineering, structural engineering, 
and transportation engineering. Whereas the Master of Science program 
would normally include course work in only one of these specialty fields, 
a program of study leading to the Doctor of Philosophy degree would 
encompass course work in a related combination of these fields. 

Laboratory facilities for sanitary engineering research work include an 
hydraulics laboratory, a chemical laboratory and a biological laboratory. 

For work in soil mechanics and foundation engineering, a fully-equipped 
laboratory with modern soil-testing equipment is available. 

Facilities for structural engineering research include a well-equipped 
physical testing laboratory and in addition an air-conditioned structural 
models laboratory. 

Transportation engineering facilities include a bituminous laboratory, 
an airphoto interpretation laboratory, a photogrammetry laboratory, and a 
traffic engineering laboratory provided with traffic control devices. 

In addition to these facilities, equipment for research is made available 
by the Department of Engineering Research. 

Some unique opportunities for research are offered the graduate student 
in civil engineering by reason of the location of North Carolina State Col- 
lege in the State's capital city. There are a number of cooperative research 
endeavors with municipal and state governmental agencies that enable the 
student to gain valuable experience through an application of his knowledge 
and skill to practical engineering problems.

Special facilities are provided in the School of Education for mature 
students and individuals who have had teaching or personnel experience 
and who hold a Bachelor's Degree to enroll for courses leading to a Master's 
Degree in Occupational Information and Guidance, or a Master of Science 
Degree in this area. Graduate work in Occupational Information and Guid- 
ance gives preparation for such positions as counselor in secondary schools, 
colleges, or community agencies; school guidance director; employment 
counselor; placement worker; business or industrial personnel worker; and 
for personnel work in the State and Federal Government. Administrators, 
supervisors, directors of instruction, and others who may wish to prepare 
themselves for positions of leadership in guidance work may also utilize 
this graduate program. 

The offerings of the Department of Occupational Information and Guid- 
ance enable graduate students in teaching areas to select appropriate 
guidance courses which will enable them to provide guidance and counseling 
for their pupils, as well as to exert influence in promoting a school-wide 
guidance program. 

The Master's program includes a core of Guidance courses as follows: Ed. 
524, Occupational Information; Ed. 631, Educational and Vocational Guid- 
ance, Ed. 633, Techniques in Guidance and Personnel; Ed. 641, Field Work;

schools, colleges, clinics, and employment offices, and other agencies, ac- 
cording to the student's interest. Courses in Psychology, Sociology, Eco- 
nomics, and Education are selected to round out the program. In addition to 
meeting the requirements for the Master's Degree, the program also meets 
the requirements for the Counselor's Certificate issued by the State Depart* 
ment of Public Instruction, as well as similar certificates in many other 
states. 

In addition to the graduate program, the Department provides instruction 
in guidance for undergraduate students in the School of Education.

Vocational Rehabilitation Counseling 

A new program made possible by a grant from the Office of Vocational 
Rehabilitation of the Department of Health, Education and Welfare, and 
begun in the Spring of 1955, provides for the training of vocational rehabil- 
itation counselors. In this program an interdisciplinary approach is used, 
with students taking the basic core of guidance courses enumerated above, 
and rounding out their programs with course work in the Departments of 
Psychology, Sociology, Economics, and also in the School of Social Work 
at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Several new courses, de- 
signed especially for the preparation of rehabilitation counselors, are offered 
in the Department of Occupational Information and Guidance, and also in 
other departments on the campus: Education 531, Vocational Rehabilitation 
Counseling — Programs and Processes, in the Department, and Sociology 505, 
Sociology of the Handicapped Worker, in the Department of Sociology. 
Other courses, of particular interest to the rehabilitation counselor, are 
being prepared, but are not listed in this issue of the Catalog. 

Part of the counselor training consists of an internship to be served in 
one of the various types of public or private agencies that provide counsel- 
ing services to the handicapped. The student has the opportunity to select 
an internship setting according to his own interests. 

The Department of Occupational Information and Guidance has received 
twenty scholarships of $1600 each to be awarded as Traineeship Grants in 
the program sponsored by the Office of Vocational Rehabilitation. These 
scholarships are provided for the purpose of increasing the number of 
qualified workers in the area of rehabilitation, and there are no obligations 
either by assigned duties during training, or in the kind of employment 
the student may select upon completion of the training program. 

Individuals qualified to provide vocational counseling for the handicapped 
are in great demand at the present time, and the future demand will be 
even greater. The impetus to rehabilitation services given by the Office of 
Vocational Rehabilitation will result in numerous occupational opportunities 
for those who have an interest in helping handicapped persons to become 
vocationally self sufficient. 

Application forms for these scholarships may be secured from Dr. Roy N. 
Anderson, Head, Department of Occupational Information and Guidance, 
School of Education.

DEPARTMENT OF ELECTRICAL ENGINEERING 

Professors: George Burnham Hoadley, Head, John Harold Lampe, Wil- 
liam Damon Stevenson, Jr. 
Associate Professor: William John Barclay. 
Assistant Professor: Edwin Harrison Tompkins, Jr. 

The graduate degrees offered by the Department of Electrical Engineer- 
ing are the Master of Science in Electrical Engineering (M.S. in E.E.) and 
the Doctor of Philosophy in Electrical Engineering (Ph.D. in E.E.). 

Graduate work in Electrical Engineering at the first-year or master's level 
divides naturally into two general fields: electronics and communication on 
the one hand, and electric power on the other. In the more advanced study 
required for the doctorate, however, this distinction tends to disappear. 

At North Carolina State College, the graduate offering in electronics and 
communication includes courses in Electric Communication, Communication 
Networks, Advanced Radio Engineering, Radiation and Antennas, and 
Vacuum Tube Design. These courses are supplemented by experimental 
work carried on in various special departmental laboratories, such as the 
high-vacuum laboratory and the microwave laboratory. These special labora- 
tories, together with a number of small laboratories in which graduate stu- 
dents carry on individual research problems, are in the newly constructed 
Daniels Hall addition. 

Graduate students specializing in electric power have the opportunity of 
taking courses in Electric Power Engineering, Industrial Electronics and 
Control, High Voltage Engineering, and Power Systems. In this case also 
there are special laboratories, such as the high-voltage laboratory and the 
servo-mechanisms laboratory, in which laboratory instruction related to 
these courses is given, and there are individual research rooms for thesis 
work. 

Advanced courses of a more general and fundamental nature, such as 
Advanced Electric Circuits and Fields, Advanced Electrical Measurements, 
and Advanced Electromagnetic Theory, are recommended for all graduate 
students in Electrical Engineering, especially those who plan to carry 
their advanced studies to the level of the doctorate. Minor sequences of 

85 



study in advanced mathematics or physics are planned to fit the needs of 
individual students. 

A close cooperation exists between the Department of Electrical Engi- 
neering and the Department of Engineering Research. Sponsored projects 
of many sorts in the general field of electrical engineering are carried on, 
each under the direction of one of the graduate staff. These projects, as a 
general rule, make use of the part-time services of one or more graduate 
students, who thus have the opportunity to earn a substantial portion of 
their expenses, to gain research experience and inspiration under expert 
leadership, and to base their master's theses or doctoral dissertations on 
research work of real importance. 

Theses submitted by graduate students in electrical engineering during 
recent years cover a wide range of topics, and include successful studies 
on the development of new field-plotting devices, on new methods of measur- 
ing the speed of rotating machines, on new techniques of high-voltage 
measurement, on new methods for predicting the performance of antennas, 
on the comparatitve performance of various electric power distribution con- 
nections, and on the automatic analysis of graphically recorded data. A 
number of these theses have been published in technical journals of na- 
tional circulation and others in the bulletins of the Department of Engi- 
neering Research. 

I who have earned their graduate degrees in electrical engineering at

THE SCHOOL OF FORESTRY 

Graduate Faculty 

Professors: Richard Joseph Preston, Dean, James Samuel Bethel, Roy 

Merwin Carter, Clarence Earl Libby, T. Ewald Maki. 
Associate Professors: William Dykstra Miller, Bruce J. Zobel. 

Graduate work in forestry is offered through the Graduate School to meet 
the needs of two classes of students: 

1. The professional degree of Master of Forestry or Master of Wood 
Technology is designed for students desiring a broad knowledge of the 
several branches of forestry with emphasis upon advanced professional 
specialization. 

2. The degree of Master of Science in Forestry or in Wood Technology is 
designed for students desiring to enter fields of research or teaching. This 
degree requires a sound fundamental background in scientific courses and 
a carefully designed program of scientific research. A reading knowledge 
of one modern foreign language is required. 

3. The degree of Doctor of Philosophy is offered in several fields of 
forestry. 

Candidates for the Master's degree will fall under one of the following 
categories: 

1. Students with a bachelor's degree in forestry from a school of recog- 
nized standing. These students may secure the master's degree in one aca- 
demic year. 

2. Students with a bachelor's degree, other than in forestry, from a 
college, university, or scientific school of high standing. These students 
may secure the master's degree in two academic years provided they have 
the requirements in botany, chemistry, and mathematics required in the 
freshman and sophomore years of the curricula. Candidates for the degree 
Master of Forestry or Master of Science in Forestry who do not hold an 
undergraduate degree in forestry must start their program with the sum- 
mer camp. 

3. Students not possessing a bachelor's degree may earn, through proper 
selection of courses, a Bachelor of Science degree in one of the forestry 
curricula at the end of the fourth year and a Master's degree in Forestry 
or Wood Technology at the end of the fifth year.

A wide and rapidly expanding field of employment possibilities is avail- 
able in the Southeast to young men trained in forestry. Until recent years 
most job opportunities were with government agencies in managing our 
public forests, and this still constitutes a major source of employment. 
These agencies include state and federal forest services, extension serv- 
ices, and other groups such as the Soil Conservation Service and the Ten- 
nessee Valley Authority. 

In recent years job opportunities with private industries have expanded 
greatly. Increasing numbers of technically trained young men are entering 
a wide variety of professional positions in the fields of forest land manage- 
ment, watershed management, logging, sawmilling, veneer and plywood 
manufacturing, pulp and papermaking, kiln drying, wood preservation, 
plastics and other chemical derivatives of wood, and the manufacture of 
wood products such as furniture, dimension stock, and various prefabricated 
items. 

Graduate training offers tangible well-established values to young men 
of proven ability. The demand for men with advanced degrees in forestry 
has far exceeded the supply for many years. 

Graduate preparation is essential for the corps of specialists which are 
needed in many fields. Training through the Master's degree is almost a 
requirement for men entering college teaching and public or industrial 
research. State and federal agencies as well as forest industries are em- 
ploying research investigators at unprecedented levels. 

The continuing rapid expansion of southern forestry has resulted in a 
corresponding expansion in the need for trained men. As a general rule 
most employers will prefer a candidate with graduate training. While for- 
est industry and public forest administration does not normally require 
graduate training, increasing numbers of positions in these fields are being 
filled by men with advanced forestry degrees, particularly the Master's de- 
gree, and a man with the Master's degree has a distinct advantage over 
one without it. 

Kilgore Hall houses the administrative offices of the School of Forestry. 
The first floor houses portions of the Wood Products Laboratory and the 
second and third floors consist of laboratories, library, classrooms and 
offices. The new Reuben B. Robertson Pulp and Paper Laboratory provides 
12,000 square feet of space for teaching and research in the production of 
pulp and paper. A new laboratory building now under construction will 
provide 18,000 square feet of space for pilot plant installations for product 
development work in the manufacture of lumber, veneer, plywood, particle 
board, laminated structures, furniture and other fabricated wood products. 

The School of Forestry now owns, or has access to, over 90.000 acres of 
forest land located in six tracts and representing major forest types in the 
state. The largest tract is the Hofmann Forest on the coastal plain which 
is operated by the North Carolina Forestry Foundation for the benefit of the 
School cf Forestry. The Hill Forest in Durham County, the Hope Valley 
Forest in Chatham County, the Goodwin Forest in Moore County, and the 
Schenck Memorial Forest in Wake County include representative types of 
the Piedmont area. The Wayah Recreational Area of the North Carolina 
National Forest near Franklin is located in a typical mountain forest, and 

98 



facilities at this area, leased from the Government, supplement the pre- 
viously established forestry camps on the Hofmann and Hill Forests and 
provide the School with permanent, well-equipped, modern camps in each 
of the three major regions of the State. 

An extensive research program in the fields of wood products, genetics 
and management, sponsored by the Agricultural Experiment Station, the 
U. S. Forest Service, and the lumber, plywood, furniture, pulp and paper, 
and particle board industries provides broad opportunities for graduate 
research at the Master's and doctoral level. These programs provide re- 
search assistantships for graduate students whose backgrounds qualify 
them. Much valuable equipment is made available by industry for research 
in wood technology and it is accessible to the graduate student working in 
this area.

Graduate study under direction of the Genetics Faculty may enable the 
student to qualify for the Master of Science or the Doctor of Philosophy 
degree. A candidate for the Master's degree must acquire a thorough 
understanding of genetics and its relation to other biological disciplines 
and must present a thesis based upon his own research. In addition to a 
comprehensive knowledge of his field, a candidate for the doctorate must 
demonstrate his capacity for independent investigation and scholarship in 
genetics. 

At North Carolina State College there are no sharp divisions along 
departmental lines between theoretical and applied aspects of genetic 
research. The Members and Associate Members of the Genetics Faculty 
represent six different departments of the School of Agriculture and the 
School of Forestry. They are studying an extremely wide range of genetic 

103 



problems and are utilizing not only the "classic'' laboratory material (Dro- 
sophila, Habrobracon, mice) but also farm animals and agricul rural and 
horticultural plants of the region. A student has therefore a wide choice 
of research problems in any of the following fields: cytology and cyto- 
genetics, physiological and irradiation genetics, forest genetics, population 
genetics and the application of quantitative gi'e:::= to breeding method- 
ology. 

The Genetics Faculty is provided with offices and laboratories in the new 
Division of Biological Sciences Building, Gardner Hall. Adjacent to the 
building are a greenhouse and a genetics garden. The genetics program 
is most fortunate in that it can also draw upon the extensive facilities of 
the North Carolina Agricultural Experiment Station through the co- 
operation of the Associate Faculty Members in Agronomy, Animal Industry, 
Horticulture, Poultry Science, Experimental Statistics, and Forestry.

The Department of Mathematics offers a graduate program leading to 
the Master of Science degree in applied mathematics. A knowledge of ad- 
vanced mathematics has become increasingly essential for graduate study 
in all of the disciplines offered in any technological branch of a university. 
This is particularly true in the several fields of engineering, physics, statis- 
tics and the biological sciences; and is becoming increasingly so in economics 
and psychology. 

Mathematicians are in great demand (and short supply) as college 
teachers, as members of mathematics groups working with large electronic 
computers, and as members of research teams in industrial or government 
laboratories. The demands of an expanding industry in North Carolina 
and especially of the Research Triangle will necessitate the employment 
of many mathematicians in this state.

The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers graduate work lead- 
ing to the degree of Master of Science in Mechanical Engineering. Admis- 
sion for graduate study leading to the Master's degree is based upon an 
undergraduate major in engineering. The specific fields in Mechanical 
Engineering are: 

(1) Heat Power, including thermodynamics, heat transfer, power gen- 
eration, steam and gas turbines, internal combustion engines, refrigeration, 
heating and air conditioning- 

(2) Design, including analysis of machines and stresses occurring in 
machine parts, experimental stress analysis and lubrication; 

(3) Aeronautics, including aerodynamics, propulsion, and aircraft struc- 
tures. 

In addition to the above, students may select courses from other depart- 
ments to supplement their work in allied fields of engineering mechanics, 
electrical engineering, mathematics, and physics. 

Excellent physical facilities are available to carry on an extensive grad- 
uate program in the various fields in Mechanical Engineering. Equipment 
which can be used in connection with experimental projects and thesis work 
includes steam turbines, air compressors, fans, blowers, heat transfer equip- 
ment, balancing machines, and refrigeration units. The laboratory is es- 
pecially well equipped for extensive research work, of both the fundamental 
and applied nature, in the field of diesel engines. There is much equipment 
available for specific research and laboratory investigations in the fields 
of air conditioning, heat transfer, fluid flow, wind tunnel investigations, 
aircraft instrumentation, and various experimental methods of stress ana- 
lysis. 

Adequate physical space in a new and modern building is available for 
setting up research projects. 

Many opportunities exist for men who are interested in additional 
training of a professional nature and particularly those interested in the

fields of design, research, and education, as well as those who may be 
interested in carrying on their education beyond the Master's level. There 
is an urgent demand for people in academic work as well as industry for 
men with advanced training at the Master of Science level. 

Several assistantships are available in the department for half time 
graduate work and half time work in the department of a teaching or 
research nature. It is expected that an assistantship student will obtain 
his Master of Science degree in two years. (See announcement pertaining 
to fellowships and assistantships elsewhere in this catalog.)

METALLURGICAL ENGINEERING 

(See Department of Mineral Industries) 

DEPARTMENT OF MINERAL INDUSTRIES 

Graduate Faculty 

Professors : William Wyatt Austin, Head, William Callum Bell, Istvan 

Ferenczi, William Wurth Kriegel, John Mason Parker, III. 
Associate Professors: William Cullen Hackler, Hans Heinrich Stadel- 

MATER. 

Special Lecturer: Abdel Aziz Fahmy. 

The Department of Mineral Industries offers graduate programs leading 
to the degrees of Master of Science in Ceramic Engineering, Geological 
Engineering, and Metallurgical Engineering, and to the degree of Doctor 
of Philosophy in Ceramic Engineering. Certain graduate courses are also 
offered for the benefit of students majoring in other areas who may be 
interested in pursuing advanced work in the Mineral Industries fields. 

Ceramic Engineering 

The graduate program in Ceramic Engineering includes study and re- 
search in the following sub-divisions: electrical ceramics, glass, vitreous 
enamels and coatings, structural clay products, refractories, whitewares 

123 



(wall tile, sanitary ware, dinnerware, etc.), and materials associated with 
nuclear reactor program. 

The prerequisite for graduate work in ceramic engineering is a proficiency 
in the undergraduate courses required for the Bachelor's degree in Ceramic 
Engineering, or substantial equivalent. 

The ceramic laboratories of the department are well equipped to enable 
carrying forward of researches in the areas previously mentioned. These 
facilities are augmented by those of the Ceramic Research Laboratories of 
the Department of Engineering Research. Also available are the Electron 
Microscope and X-Ray Diffraction Laboratories of that Department, and 
the Nuclear Reactor of the Physics Department. 

Illustrative of the scope of graduate research in ceramics at North Caro- 
lina State College are some of the recent and current projects. These have 
encompassed studies of the dielectric and physical characteristics of ceramic 
bodies in the system BaTi0 3 , studies of the power losses in low dielectric 
constant ceramics, the effect of devitrification of the glassy phase on the 
conductivity of ceramic insulator bodies, studies in spodumene, tremolite, 
talc, and nepheline syenite in multiflux vitreous bodies, diffusion of selected 
isotopes through ceramic and cermet bodies, high temperature load bearing 
characteristics of silica-clay refractories, the effect of alkali on the hygro- 
scopicity of glass, studies of the maximum safe rate of drying structural 
clays and the pozzolanic properties of shale. 

Geological Engineering 

The graduate program in Geological Engineering is directed to the 
advanced training of qualified scientists who are urgently needed in the 
location and evaluation of mineral resources of the State and nation. 
Candidates for admission to this program should hold the degree of Bachelor 
of Geological Engineering or a satisfactory equivalent. 

The solution of professional problems in geology, as in other fields today, 
is requiring more quantitative data and specialized training than can be 
included in an undergraduate curriculum. Graduate training makes pro- 
fessional advancement more sure and rapid. A person with such training 
in geology will find employment with oil and mining companies, govern- 
mental agencies, and educational and research institutions. 

North Carolina State College is on the Piedmont Plateau near the edge 
of the Atlantic Coastal Plain. A great variety of problems in igneous, 
sedimentary, and metamorphic geology are to be found within a radius of 
50 miles of Raleigh. 

Facilities are available for research in mineralogy, petrography, mineral 
dressing, and problems relating to engineering. Excellent collections of 
geological literature are available at North Carolina State College, at the 
University at Chapel Hill, and at Duke University in Durham. 

Metallurgical Engineering 

The rapid expansion of the metal-working and related mineral industries 
in the South in recent years has brought about a sharp increase in the 
demand for trained leaders in these fields. There is at present intense em- 
phasis on advanced study and research on the fundamental behavior of 

124 



metals and alloys. From this work will come urgently-needed improve- 
ments in metallic materials of construction to withstand increasingly drastic 
service requirements — higher stresses, higher temperatures, corrosive and 
radioactive environments. Consequently the engineering graduate who 
avails himself of the opportunity for advanced study in this field will 
greatly enhance his usefulness as an engineer regardless of his field of 
specialization. 

Opportunities for men with graduate training in metallurgy and metal- 
lurgical engineering are almost unlimited. Industry and Universities today 
need approximately four times as many metallurgists with advanced de- 
grees as are available. It has been estimated that by 1975 the electrical, 
chemical, aircraft, and nuclear industries will require 50,000 research 
metallurgists and metallurgical engineers. The number presently avail- 
able is approximately 2,000. Present ratios indicate that one-third to one- 
half of the 50,000 graduates needed should have advanced training beyond 
the bachelor's degree. The shortage of graduates with advanced degrees is 
further accentuated by the need for qualified college faculty members to 
provide adequate instruction in metallurgical and related fields. Thus it is 
readily seen that there is a very real and urgent need for an intensification 
of emphasis at the graduate level on the training of metallurgical engineers 
to assume leadership in expanding the frontiers of knowledge of metals 
and alloys, and to provide a source of additional faculty manpower in this 
important area. 

North Carolina State College is one of the few institutions in the 
South, and the only institution in North Carolina, prepared to offer gradu- 
ate instruction in metallurgical engineering. In addition to the advanced 
work in metallurgical engineering, the School of Engineering also offers 
an excellent program of supporting courses at the graduate level in the 
related fields of physics, chemistry, mathematics, engineering mechanics, 
and in mechanical, chemical, ceramic, and nuclear engineering. 

Fellowships and Graduate Assistantships 

Financial assistance is available to graduate students in the Department 
of Mineral Industries; Graduate assistantships permit half-time studies in 
either Ceramic Engineering, Geological Engineering, or Metallurgical En- 
gineering, and half time to be devoted to teaching or other assigned duties. 
Applications should be made to the Department. Also certain sponsored 
fellowships which permit full time to be devoted to graduate studies, such 
as the Edward Orton, Jr. Ceramic Foundation Fellowship, are available.

and the methods of engineering are applied to the solution of the new and 
unusual problems encountered in this work. 

The application of nuclear processes is rapidly growing, particularly in 
the development of nuclear power and the need for trained students is 
correspondingly great. The problem of study at North Carolina State Col-

The Department of Psychology at North Carolina State College offers a 
course of graduate study leading to the Master of Science Degree in Indus- 
trial Psychology. This emphasis is in accord with the general character of 
the instructional program of the College, the technological branch of the 
Consolidated University of North Carolina. 

Graduate students at State College are offered opportunities for course 
work in personnel selection and classification methods, worker and man- 
agement training, management psychology, psychological testing and meas- 
urement, interviewing and counseling, applied experimental psychology, 
and human engineering, clinic practicum, and human learning. A strong 
emphasis is placed on research work in industrial psychology, and each 
student is expected to conduct an organized and directed research project 
as part of his total Master's Degree requirements. Rich opportunities for 

141 



practicum in industrial psychology are offered graduate students through 
the program of research and consultative activities which the Department 
carries on with industrial, governmental and institutional organizations. 

inimum of thirty semester hours of graduate credit is required for 
the Master's Degree, but the actual graduate program for each student is 
determined on the basis of his individual needs, interests and accomplish- 
ments and very likely will require hours in excess of this minimum. 

The program of e faa designed to provide the student with solid 

grounding in the basic core areas of psychology such as general psychol- 
ogy and behavior theory, personality, research methods and statistical 
techniques, measurement, and social psychology. On this base the special- 
ization in industrial and applied psychology is laid with specific coursework 
and practicum. 

Since it is located on the campus of an outstanding technological insti- 
tution, the Department of Psychology finds strong support in other de- 
partments of the College which offer minors and related training to supple- 
ment and strengthen the industrial psychology program. Such work is 
found in industrial engineering, st . : ; . economics, guidance and coun- 

seling, textile technology ar.d the varied agricultural sciences and tech- 
nologies. 

Admission requirements for graduate study in the Department of Psy- 
chology are as follows: a minimum of Iwent* semester credit hours in 
undergraduate psychology, the maintenance of a B average in undergradu- 
ate psychology courses; satisfactory grades in other collegiate studies; 
satisfactory references from faculty and others in regard to character and 
quality of work. In some special cases provisional acceptance is granted 
where some of these requirements are not met. 

The Psychology Department is housed in Tompkins Hall. The physical

One of the major functions of the Psychology Department in addition to 
its teaching and ba?:: rr ; tir:'r. activities is the provision of research and 
consulting services to industrial, governmental and institutional organiza- 
tions in the State and region. In order to accommodate the need for this 
type of activity the Department has established the Industrial Psychology 
Center. The services carried on through Una Center include contract re- 
search, consultation on industrial psychology problems including training, 
selection, organization, attitude HUifeffH and all types of industrial psy- 
chology practice. 

Employment opportunities for persons holding the Master's Desree in 
Industrial Psychology are good. Recent graduates from the Industrial 
Psychology program at State College have found responsible positions in 
business and industrial organizations, in government aeencies. especially 
those engaged in research of an applied nature. 11k armed forces likewise 
continue to need trained psycholcr — in their research programs. Many of 
our students elect to continue graduate study toward the doctorate in 
eholoey. Their master's program in addition to providing them with good 
professional training has proved to be excellent preparation for future 
rr~. "■---- = --- -v.

Courses for Advanced Undergraduates 

SOC 491. Human Relations in Industrial Society 3 or 3 

Selected societies about the world are contrasted with American society to demonstrate the 
correlation between technology and general behavior patterns, both within industry and in 
the total social order. The patterns of adjustment by the individual to the organizational 
framework (business concern, manufacturing enterprise, etc.) are analyzed in terms of so- 
cial status, social roles, work norms, and attitudes. The social significance of major charac- 
teristics of contemporary industry is considered in terms of such topics as enlargement of 
the geographic bounds of the human community, development of occupational specialization, 
alteration of the character of inter-group interaction, and the growing integration of Amer- 
ican culture. The interrelationships between industry and social change are discussed to show 
the effect of new social conditions upon industrial operations and the effect of technological 
change upon the family, school, church, and government. The contribution of industry to 
social progress is analyzed to promote the student's understanding of the dynamic quality 
of the social environment within which he will function.

(adequate housing, and the design of physical and social structures for religious, educational, 
public welfare, and recreational activities). Socio-psychological aspects of life in an urbanized 
society are compared with those of predominantly agricultural societies. The increasing 
integration of urban and rural living is emphasized. Finally, the changing character of 
urban life is seen in the resulting demand for city and regional planning and the use of 
administrative personnel having both technical and social backgrounds. 

SOC 411. Community Relationships 3 or 3 

A survey of the institutions, organizations, and agencies to be found in modern com- 
munities : the social conditions or problems, such as recreation, health, welfare, etc., with

social norms. While comparative anthropological materials will be drawn 
upon, emphasis is placed upon the normal personality and the adjustment 
of the individual to our society and to our culture. The dynamics of per- 
sonality and character structure are analyzed in terms of the general 
culture patterns and social institutions of society. 

Messrs. Rawls, Winston.

the major social environments are considered at length in this regard. Ob- 
jectives of the rehabilitation processes are analyzed in terms of the sociol- 
ogy of work. A major portion of the course is devoted to rehabilitation as a 
profession, particular attention being given to the diverse roles of special- 
ists in this field. Mr Rawls

DEPARTMENT OF STATISTICS (EXPERIMENTAL) 

Graduate Faculty 

Professors: Jackson Ashcraft Rigney, Head, Richard Loree Anderson, 
Gertrude Mary Cox, Alva Leroy Finkner, Robert John Hader, 
Henry Laurence Lucas, Jr., David Dickenson Mason, Robert James 
Monroe, Harold Frank Robinson, George Waddel Snedecor, Evan- 
James Williams. 

Associate Professors: Columbus Clark Cockerham. Arnold Herbert 
Edward Grandage, Francis Edward McVay. 

Assistant Professor: Jack Fleischer. 

The Department of Experimental Statistics offers work leading to the 
Master of Science and Doctor of Philosophy degrees. There is a working 
arrangement with the Department of Biostatistics in the University's School 
of Public Health at Chapel Hill, whereby their graduate students can major 
in Experimental Statistics and minor in the Division of Health Affairs. The 
Department of Experimental Statistics maintains a close liaison with 
the Department of (Mathematical) Statistics at Chapel Hill in order to 
strengthen the offerings in statistical theory. Introductory courses of these 
two departments are coordinated so that it is easy for a beginning statistics 
graduate student to transfer from one institution of the Consolidated Uni- 
versity to another. Both departments are affiliated with the Institute of 
Statistics (See page 22). 

The Department has at least one staff member who consults with re- 
searchers in each of the following fields and who conducts his own research 
on statistical problems which are encountered: the various agricultural 

156 



sciences, quantitative genetics, industry and engineering, physical sciences 
and social sciences. In addition there is active research in the general 
fields of experimental design and sample surveys. A graduate student who 
majors in Experimental Statistics may specialize in any one of these fields 
of interest with his minor in the associated department; or with a strong 
mathematical background he may prefer to minor in mathematics or mathe- 
matical statistics. For the graduate student who wishes to minor in sta- 
tistics, the Department has developed a curriculum tailored to his needs. 
Many employers are offering added inducements for research personnel 
who have such a minor. The Department maintains close cooperation with 
other graduate departments in order to provide the type of courses needed 
for their students and to provide a staff to participate in their graduate 
programs. 

In addition to its consulting services, the Department also provides a 
computing service for the Agricultural Experiment Station and for other 
research departments on the campus and in the State. It furnishes several 
federal agencies and private concerns with research and consulting services 
on a contract basis. A Survey Operations Unit at Chapel Hill is available 
for research and training in the practical and theoretical problems encoun- 
tered in the conduct of actual surveys. This Unit works in conjunction with 
the Sampling Section in the Department of Experimental Statistics. All of 
this work supplies a wealth of live problems on which graduate students 
acquire experience and maturity. 

The Department of Experimental Statistics is located in Patterson Hall, 
which is adjacent to the new D. H. Hill Library. A departmental library 
is maintained with copies of most important statistical books and periodi- 
cals. The reprint files of several staff members are available for the use of 
graduate students. A fully equipped IBM Laboratory, to which an elec- 
tronic digital computer recently has been added, is maintained for research 
requiring excessive computations, and automatic desk calculators are avail- 
able for small jobs. 

The Department has approximately 20 graduate assistantships at stipends 
adjusted to the previous training and experience of the recipients. 

Most fields of research, development, production and distribution are 
seeking persons trained in statistical theory and methods. The demand is 
equally strong from universities, agricultural and engineering experi- 
mental stations, national defense agencies, other federal agencies, and a 
wide variety of industrial concerns. There is a need for experimental statis- 
ticians with the master's degree as well as for those with the doctorate. 
With so few institutions now providing the type of statistical training 
available at North Carolina State College, there is no hope of satisfying 
this demand for years to come.

Thomas Lavelle Quay. 

Assistant Professors: William Walton Hassler, Edward McLean Lowry. 

The Master of Science and the Doctor of Philosophy degrees are offered 
in Animal Ecology and Wildlife Conservation and Management. Graduate 
programs leading to advanced degrees in Animal Parasitology can be ar- 
ranged in cooperation with the Department of Zoology of the University 
of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. 

The new O. Max Gardner Biological Laboratories building has excellent 
facilities for training and research. The classrooms and laboratories are 
furnished with modern equipment. Spacious graduate student offices are 
available as well as a number of well-equipped research laboratories which 
provide space for graduate students' investigations. Excellent library fa- 
cilities are provided for advanced study in the special areas of Zoology in 
which graduate degrees are offered. 

Accommodations are provided for the well-curated teaching collections 
of fish, reptiles and amphibians. An advanced herpetological teaching and 
research laboratory is located near the range room and the graduate stu- 
dents' offices. A large bird and mammal range adequate to contain an esti- 
mated 25,000 specimens is on the same floor as the wildlife teaching lab- 

173 



oratory. A separate cataloging and graduate workroom adjoins the bird 
and mammal range. Comparison collections are available for food habits 
research studies on all native game animals. 

Excellent facilities for life history and ecologic studies are available in 
the field of animal parasitology. A large autopsy and specimen preparation 
laboratory is housed in an adjacent building, which also includes an aquari- 
um room, small mammal room, and dermestid room. 

Several farm ponds ranging in size from two to seven acres are located 
on the state lands near Raleigh and are available for farm pond research 
studies. Several experimental nursery pools are located adjacent to Gard- 
ner Hall, and additional facilities near Fayetteville have been made avail- 
able through a cooperative program with the North Carolina Wildilfe 
Resources Commission. 

A wide variety of positions are open to students holding advanced degrees 
in Animal Ecology and Wildlife Conservation and Management. There is 
particular need for young men with training in parasitology and related 
subjects. While the various state game and fish departments, United States 
Fish and Wildlife Service, United States Forest Service, United States Soil 
Conservation Service, United States National Parks Service, and other state 
and land use departments employ the majority of graduates, an increasing 
number of teaching positions in these fields are available. There are, more- 
over, more vacancies currently available for qualified individuals than can 
be adequately filled. It appears that this condition will prevail for at least 
several more years.
